have also have another major issue on their hands a looming gas crisis they've already dipped into long term storage tanks after russia cut off supplies over unpaid bills and e.u. heads fear that could have a knock on effect for them or this is energy changed in the offing and he says that germany actually could suffer and that's because gazprom is concerned ukraine may start siphoning off gas destined for europe meanwhile russian prime minister dmitry medvedev believes there could be a full scale gas crisis as soon as the autumn and he made that claim on his facebook page. so why is there so much concern about why the gas crisis in europe well if we have a look at this map over here might explain a few things it does show you that e.u. countries will receive gas from russia via pipelines that go straight through ukraine however it's the ukraine main tap into those supplies after having their own cut off by moscow and that in turn will mean europe won't get the gas it needs

3:10 am
saudi nationals there widespread reports that wealthy donors in saudi arabia had been funding the isis throughout their fight in syria and beyond riyadh may now say that it has nothing to do with the rise of this radical group that it itself is spread by but experts believe saudi arabia has helped create the floors in ways more than just providing funding and fighters they need to think. that. and i think give the wahhabi to saudi arabia means studio. a lot of their teaching go to do that to you. just in the span of several years bolstered by the fight against assad in syria the isis has advanced so far as to declare an islamic caliphate a pos the territories that it now controls both iraq and syria the question is whether saudi arabia sees the isis as a serious threat it has warned against foreign military into ference in iraq and

3:12 am
state with a lot of influence also on the shia population in iraq iraq is mixed we know that so saudi arabia tries there to expand their influence. washington meanwhile has left the door open to an expanded role for its military in iraq with one general saying strike for main an option but russia's president believes america's involvement as safe proved to be destructive. school bus would look like a bull in a china shop they came they salvaged the place and then left and all this with a noble pretext and good intentions and everything falls apart cayle some collapse route. so we discuss the legacy of america's occupation with security analyst michael maloof and he thinks the us has opened up a pandora's box in the region. they were aware of the disputes the sectarian disputes between the sunnis and the shia and the kurds but i don't think they ever
3:13 am
saw isis really take off the way the way that it did at the moment nobody is there to actually stop them in terms of military capability they are exercising some very professional type of military tactics and the question is will they be able to govern the territory that they've been able to take over the show in a very professional slick approach toward establishing this caliphate and and they are moving on now you still using online services that let you can see your identity and you're like well that means you're a potential terrorist in the eyes of america's national security agency stay with us for this story plus plenty more after a quick break. we're all talking about language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports for. the new i will leave them to the state department to comment on

3:16 am
here in germany now what we have seen is a standoff between them and police this road here in the center of the german capital has been shot so often is a large police presence here a large group of demonstrators gather at either end of this street and they're angry at what they see as a double standard by the german government when it comes to refugee rights they're actually recognised as refugees from the un convention but germany doesn't accept to start with they just want to push them back into to delhi or depart and back into countries many of those inside the school which includes refugees from ghana nigeria and syria police are understood to be in favor of evacuating the building or some opposition politicians are hoping a solution can be found that sees the group allowed to stay in the abandoned school bus and there should be no violent eviction of the refugees from the school despite the words of the german president about doing more to help refugees this district in berlin remains in uproar over what they see as hypocrisy on asylum peter all

3:18 am
submarines and two royal marines commando units based in scotland the s.n.p. has promised to maintain all military establishment in scotland in the event of independence but the problem is that at the moment there's simply no agreement over what would happen to britain's defense says if scotland were to leave the union the u.k.'s first seen lord has warned that the royal navy is already constrained by budget cuts and a split with scotland would further weaken the effectiveness of britain's maritime defense says since the s.n.p. say that they would abolish nuclear weapons in the event of a yes vote many questions surround the future of trying to end the u.k. submarine based nuclear missile system that station and western scotland tridents unique deep water location is a key strategic importance as it provides quick access to the atlantic finding
3:19 am
somewhere else to park the u.k.'s nuclear deterrent would be a long and complicated process that is likely to make nato extremely nervous scotland's had a historical role in the royal navy at the battle of trafalgar almost a third of nelson's men was gods but if they vote yes to independence britain's new us super aircraft carrier could be the last to be launched in scottish waters polly boyd artsy. or both sides in the iraq campaign have promised to step up. and discuss the possible scenarios but the company's. i feel depressed at the thought of scotland breaking away i think it diminishes us all by to be quite honest i don't think the s.n.p. had really thought through in detail the implications of some things and defense was one of the ones they haven't thought it through in great detail i think when we talk about defense an independent scotland all roads eventually lead to tried and

3:21 am
scotland supplication to join nato was successful then then scotland would come under the article five of the north atlantic treaty and would expect the rest of the nato organization to come to their aid and vice versa. let's have a quick look at some other world needs now the israeli military has bolstered forces along the volatile border with the gaza strip the move came in response to intensifying rocket fire and mounting tension in the region officials say the deployment includes tanks artillery and ground forces montell of it a demonstration took place condemning the violence between israel. palestine protests also took place in east jerusalem where palestinians mourn for the death of a teenager earlier this week i think i wrote a series of demonstrations of mark the anniversary of the outgoing of the ousting story of egypt's president mohamed morsi morsy protesters blocked traffic and burnt car tires chanting slogans against egypt's newly elected president abdul fattah
